Rafael Nadal attended Spain's Davis Cup tie against Israel to support his Spanish Armada's team mates yesterday.
Later he told television crews that he is recovering from his abdominal injury "little by little."
Despite his injury, Nadal is still scheduled to compete at the PTT Thailand Open in Bangkok end of this month, with organisers saying the world no. 2 has confirmed his participation
Nadal is scheduled to arrive in Bangkok on September 23 for his Thailand Open debut.
However, he will fly to Krabi for a vacation before returning to Bangkok on September 29 (Tuesday).
At first I was tempted to go to Bangkok during that weekend but looking at his schedule, I decided to cancel the plan and concentrate on covering the PROTON Malaysian Open instead.
Defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will arrive in the morning on September 26 (Saturday) and the draw will be made in the afternoon.
The PTT Thailand Open will be held at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani from September 26 to Oct 4.
While Nadal playing in Thailand, his team mates including Fernando Verdasco, David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez will be playing in the neighbouring country at the PROTON Malaysian Open during the same week.
